We are working on a couple of projects in which we are thinking of painting organic forms on the walls or ceilings, so I have eyes set for any organic form I see painted on any surface. For one house we are injecting decorative traditional and oragnic forms into the cool modern architecture. The master bathroom, in particular, with its silver, mosaic-tile floor, white walls, and white, high-gloss lacquer bombe vanities need some whimsy to set the room apart. I want a floral design to be painted in silver on the white, high-gloss ceiling.
I am not exactly sure what the exact floral is going to look like yet, but I know it will add just the right amount of glamour the bathroom deserves. I was just poking around and found some shots that Eric Laignel took for Interior Design a couple of years ago for the Reiss showroom in New York’s Greenwich Village. Here D_Raw Associates mixed industrial raw materials with natural elements by painting organically inspired flowers right onto the exposed brick. Read the article, which has a slideshow with more images.
I feel inspired not only by these images but also by spring which seems to be right around the corner. So now the task at hand is to create a design and then find the perfect artist who is willing and able to lie on their back and create a masterpiece on my clients’ master bathroom ceiling.
